Why isn't Tim Weah getting game time?

Think he’s with the U-23s right now, but you’d expect him to be a serious option over the next few years

Glad he went out on loan. Been getting playing time for Celtic, but hasn’t started much.

Very good news, he’s apparently had an excellent half-season in Turkey.

New Zealand-born forward Tyler Boyd has been approved to switch affiliation to the United States by FIFA.

Boyd, 24, scored five goals and had four assists in 13 games for Ankaragucu, in Turkey's top division, in the second half of the season on loan from Portugal's Vitoria Guimaraes.

Boyd played for New Zealand at the 2013 Under-20 World Cup and made his debut for the senior national team in Japan in 2014. He has played six international matches, all exhibitions.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced on Saturday that soccer's international governing body had approved Boyd's application.

Sorry, Kiwis.

The question you'll want to ask yourself is why we didn't pick him for 5 years during an entire World Cup qualification cycle - friendly or otherwise, and why he couldn't get off the bench for the Phoenix in the A-League (a standard of football that makes the MLS look like the Champions League) before he left.

That Gold Cup squad is really bad. We've done absolutely nothing to change since losing to T&T. Not like there aren't young players who don't deserve a chance

What a f*cking mess. However, this should be tempered with the fact that the best players were not chosen and the up and coming young talent were away at the U20 WC (including Weah).

Those subs were pretty atrocious. The team did exceed my expectations during the tournament though

Thought we had the right approach in first half. Had 2-3 chances to go ahead. Second half subs were horrendous. Out managed in the second half badly. No surprise on that front.

Does ESPN+ carry all MLS games? I pretty much like to have as much live football on my tv as possible. I have Direct TV Now and not one channel is showing one of the seven live games on right now. Currently watching TFC vs Montreal Impact on my chipped cable box which carries TSN but the quality isn’t quite HD. $4.99 isn’t much admittedly for ESPN+ but for none of the cable channels to not be showing one game is quite ludicrous.

It carries every game that's not on national TV. So it'll have today's on there. It's a great deal considering the rest of the competitions they have, too
